Vad du kommer att göra

Curious about how and why Manhattan is built up the way it is? Looking for a fun, alternative daytime activity to do during your visit?

A departure from your average sightseeing tour, you'll be receiving the "locals-only treatment" that won't disappoint. Using curated sites on the streets as our canvas, this Experience explores the Big Apple’s built landscape through world-class architecture, fascinating urban planning, and fun facts about 'Manhattan Island' along the way.

You'll also learn about the history and details of structures that are overlooked in everyday life, and how buildings and public spaces have informed each other from the late 19th century until today.

David tours guests through either the Chelsea/Meatpacking area or the Lower East Side/SoHo area. Each stop along the tour's route will discuss a different theme of planning and architecture that will build upon each other until the conclusion of the tour. The walking tour will last 2.5 hours and either route covers the same topics.

Guests will have the opportunity to walk indoors to stop for a snack/beverage along the way, and there will be plenty of opportunities to use the restroom. Please be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and please be sure to bring plenty of water during the summers. For inclement weather, please stay tuned the day before in case of cancellation or rescheduling.

Hello there! I'm David and currently live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I hold a degree in urban design from Parsons School of Design here in the city, and love all things NYC architecture facts & trivia. During the week, I work in marketing at an architecture and interior design firm.

I grew up in the NY/NJ area, and am passionate about showing visitors (and locals alike!) my favorite spots in the city and the lesser-known facts about them. When not touring, I'm on the hunt for the city's very best chocolate chip cookie.

David is a great tour guide; very knowledgeable and presented everything in an interesting way. Was also able to answer all our questions that we had. Looking forward to taking some of his other tours!

Great tour to get a feel for architecture and urban design in the Chelsea, Highline and Meatpacking areas. David was very personable and showed us some details that gave me a new appreciation for the area. I also learned new things about how NYC is designed and what factors influence new construction and development. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to understand and gain an appreciation for the architecture in the area!

David is a lovely tour guide! He offers a wholistic approach to New York’s architecture and city planning, instead of just briefing the super famous buildings. 10/10! Made friends on the tour as well :)

We really enjoyed our walk with David who had nicely themed various buildings he showed to us - it gave us a nice connection to the architectural style / technique used ! His choice of architectural sites was also great ! Was a relaxing walk full of content <3

We had a good time with David and the others who joined us on the walk. It was very easy to meet up with him, and both he and the people in our group were super pleasant to spend time with. We were with my mother who walks slowly and he was very good at managing the pace to allow us to keep up with the group. David was relaxed and friendly and it was great to look at buildings and building details we might not have noticed otherwise, taking us from seeing New York's beautiful skyline as one bulk to seeing the individual components that make it what it is.
